Tiger Build 9

Tiger 9 is our ninth build with Tech High School in St. Cloud. The students at the high school built the upper portion of the house during the 2023-24 school year. This partnership with CMHFH helps students prepare for promising careers in the trades. High school students gain experience framing, installing siding, roofing, trim, and cabinetry. College students complete the plumbing and electrical work. As a result, 50+ students exit the program ready to start their careers each year.

Mohamed and Mahado learned of Habitat through a friend. With space getting tight for their growing children and ever-increasing rental costs, they were looking for a good place to live that was cost effective. They are excited and proud to be part of the Habitat program.

Mohamed and Mahado were both born in Somalia and spent most of their childhood and young adult lives in a refugee camp in Kenya, where they met. They lived there until 2007 when Mahado immigrated to the United States with her family, living briefly in New York before moving to Saint Cloud. In 2012, Mohamed was able to join Mahado in Saint Cloud where they have a large support system of extended family and friends.

Mohamed works at We Care Adult services. He recently graduated with his bachelor’s degree in Social Work from SCSU!

Mohamed and Mahado have six children age newborn to 13 years, who like playing with their friends, coloring, basketball, football, and soccer. They are excited to have a house and neighborhood where they can ride their bikes and hope to get a soccer net and basketball hoop for their new home.

Mohamed and Mahado are looking forward to homeownership; a place to call home where they can create a happy environment for their children to grow including a backyard to play in and being part of a neighborhood. They hope “to bring about a life that will support us now, and in the future be able to contribute back to the Habitat for Humanity community.”
